Right now there are approximately 30 tent camps in the Woodbridge area with hundreds of homeless men and women. Why do they live in tents in the woods? None can afford housing (it is hard to find even a room for rent in this area for less than $1,000 a month). Some have been in homeless shelters, but have reached their maximum stay allowance. A few have pets that they would have to leave behind in order to stay in a shelter. Most cannot find jobs. All are just trying to survive. The funds raised will go to two organizations, the Woodbridge Homeless Outreach and The 25th Project, which provide essentials such as propane tanks (to help alleviate the freezing cold), tarps, coats, socks, RX, dental assistance. The goal is to empower, and encourage our homeless neighbors to take the next steps towards self-sufficiency.
